Sold out
Sometimes you want to mark a grand achievement with a solid celebration. It could be running around the field with your jersey pulled over your head, inviting your friends over to share the love, or relishing the resounding smack of a perfectly connected high five. Balter�s IIPA is another one of those triumphant tips of the hat to well-earned success. Bursting with hops, strong in ABV and coming in a tall tin, it is large in every way. �We�ve never brewed a beer this big, so it was a test of our capacity,� says Balter Head Brewer Scott Hargrave. �We had to figurePurvis Beer out just how much malt can we get in the mash mixer without it overflowing. We got a tonne in. It�s a huge beer, hopped to the shithouse.� Our second ever special release style, the recipe has been refined over the last six months to deliver a strong flavour that�s still balanced in its approach. �IIPA can be overbearing because they�re big and boozy and get sweet and sticky,� explains Scott. �You have much more of everything. So we stripped the malt way back to be essentially pale malt with a sprinkle of wheat and then dissolved as much hops as we could into it. That should give it more drinkability. Still, stop at one and you�re good. Maybe that�s a challenge to some, but it�s meant to be a stand alone salute.� Packaged in a 500ml tin with four yellow stripes to hint at its substantial nature, the Balter IIPA goes a little something like this: A noble beer for a noble thirst, this Imperial IPA is like a tangy fruit salad with extra punch. Clean, hefty hop notes provide substantial palate weight with hints of pineapple, pine and citrus, while the higher alcohol content delivers a delightfully dry, spicy finish. In a tall tin so you can share it with a mate celebrating a royal achievement, or simply soaking up the last shadows of a classic day. Dropping onto shelves right around our 2nd Birthday, we hope it comes at a good time to mark your own prominent occasion. Cheers.
